The Function of a Spark Plug The spark plug has three functions: 1: Ignite air/fuel mixture in combustion chamber Transfer heat out from the combustion chamber Seals the combustion chamber  The primary function of a spark plug is to ignite the air and fuel mixture inside the combustion chamber. The resulting ignition in the combustion…

How to Change Spark Plugs

When it comes to removing and installing spark plugs, a job well done isn’t always the quickest. Anyone who has had to remove a cylinder head to retrieve a broken spark plug knows just how important it is to do things right when performing this task.  Before you begin make sure that you have the…

Silver

Silver is the best thermal and electrical conductor of all metals, which means silver provides a superior electron flow that provides superior sparking. This is especially advantages for engines using hard to ignite fuels. (LPG, Alcohol and Nitromethane)     Silver has the best thermal heat and electrical conductivity compared to other metal. Silver conducts…

Electrical Performance

Electrical energy is transmitted from the ignition coil to the inside of combustion chamber via the spark plug cables and spark plug. Sparking occurs between spark plug firing tip and the ground electrode (aka spark plug gap), thus igniting the A/F mixture. An adequate amount of voltage must be supplied by the ignition system (ignition…

Thermal Performance

Spark plugs do not create heat, they only remove heat from its firing tip to prevent it from getting too hot and glowing thus preventing pre-ignition. However, the spark plug temperature also needs to be high enough to prevent fouling. Fouling is the accumulation of foreign substance such as fuel, oil or carbon on the…
